Make Your House Smell Great with Easy DIY Simmer Scents for Autumn


Looking for an easy, inexpensive way to make your house smell great? Bring in the warm, comforting aromas of fall by simmering a few household ingredients you may already have on hand!

Fill a sauce pan or pot with water and bring to a boil — THEN add your desired ingredients. Turn the heat down to a simmer and enjoy!

Try these aromatic combinations:

  • orange peel and a teaspoon of vanilla
  • orange peel, 3 cinnamon sticks, a few whole cloves
  • sprig of fresh rosemary, teaspoon of vanilla, lemon rind (also known as the famous “Williams Sonoma scent”)
  • apple peel, a few whole cloves, 2 cinnamon sticks, orange peel

Add more water through out the day as needed, typically about every 30 minutes (otherwise, you’ll end up with the smell of scorched food wafting through the house).
